    yep. last piece of an old ilcea baby calf. i selected it when i visited him last summer. hard to describe , but the leather has a translucent quality about it. it's like looking into black water. he was quite heart broken that he had to cut the leather. took me quite some convincing. he initially tought he had one more piece for his personal archive , but this turned out to be the very last piece and ilcea doesn't make this exact quality anymore. it will be made on a round english last.

    It's because of his low volumes, you have to ship 40-50 parcels a month, at least, to get a decent contract with better rates.
